Abstract : An attempt has been made to understand the transmission dynamics of malicious signals in wireless sensor networks. An energy efficient e-epidemic model with data packet transmission delay has been considered. Linear stability analysis is performed for all the equilibrium points, whose characteristic equations involve the time delay. Global stability and Hopf bifurcation analyses are carried out for the endemic equilibrium point of the delay system. Attention has been paid to the direction of Hopf bifurcation and the stability of the resulting periodic solutions. Numerical study exhibits double Hopf bifurcation dynamics and it causes stability switching i.e., instability to stability and back to instability or the reverse transition of the solution of the considered system. Finally, numerical simulations provide useful observations for different delays and they show an interesting bifurcation scenario
